Q: Hello 5i Team,

I'm creating TFSAs for my two children, and I would like to purchase a basket of 15-20 Canadian stocks and CIBC CDRs, since their accounts are commission-free.

Could you please recommend some names for me to consider with a focus on growth while maintaining some sector diversity.

Would you recommend adding a global ETF for geographical diversity? If so, what?

Feel free to subtract as many credits as you see fit.

Thanks, as always, for your helpful advice.

Q: Hi Team,
For an 18 year old who just opened their TFSA and starting with $6500, what stocks or ETFs (CDN and/or US) would you start with? There are no trading fees so there is no worry to buy 10 names if that is the best way forward.

Q: The media occasionally references buying "Dogs of the Dow". Do you know if any comparative analysis has been done of the better Dow stocks which may be termed "Stars of the Dow"? If so, is there any guidance to be suggested? I think 5i favours buying "winners" rather than "losers". Thank you for your always well-reasoned comments.

Q: I manage my son's TFSA and have just sold his NVDA shares at a 200% profit. Many thanks for 5i's excellent advice on this purchase! He needs the money next year and I felt - after a good run - it was time to play it safe and cash in. I would now like to reinvest the funds in a less volatile stock - in any sector - that still has reasonable growth prospects over the next year. CSU comes to mind (and I know you're a big fan). MSFT and GOOG already owned. What would be your top three choices for replacing NVDA - Canadian or US? Thank you,
